Lane uses various methods to place students in both math courses and non-math courses requiring math prerequisites. Lane's placement process is a survey, and if necessary, placement exams. The enrollment system is linked to automatically allow you to register for classes you placed into. It is also a process where many of the choices are yours.
First: The Placement Survey
This is an online survey that asks you information about your history. What standardized exams have you taken? What high school courses did you take in the last two years? View the survey.
When you submit your answers at the end of the survey, your answers will be loaded into the system automatically allowing you to register for the classes you placed into. You will receive an email with your placement results in your Lane student email account.
